MathXL Assignments

MathXLComputer2Some assignments througout the year will be completed online through MathXL.  In order to get to the MathXL that we use in Duval County, you MUST use the blended learning links, which automatically use your DCPS computer log-in to access your class assignments.

The easiest way to get to MathXL from here, is to click on “Textbook and MathXL” in the menu above.   Once you sign in to Pearson Realize (the textbook website) you will see your Algebra I or Algebra II class listed on the LEFT side of the screen.   Under the class name, you have two options, the first is the online textbook, and the second is “MathXL.”

*It is important that you use the blue text link on the left side of the page, and not the button on the right side of the page.  The right side will not link to your assignment, so don’t go there!!
